Oddly enough, everyone seems to want a piece of notorious bank robber John Dillinger. Thanks to Johnny Depp's performance in the the blockbuster movie, "Public Enemies," being associated with the Indiana bad guy now has panache.
For proof, a Remington .41 caliber double derringer that was used by the outlaw brought $95,600 at auction in Texas.

The small pistol was hidden in Dillinger's sock when he was arrested in Tucson, Arizona 75 years ago, the auction house said in a statement.
Six months later on July 22, 1934, he was killed in by federal agents outside the Chicago Theater.
The .38-caliber gun used to kill Dillinger will be auctioned off Tuesday at Chicago's Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. Estimates say it is worth between $8,000 and $12,000.
